965 BE brand new runs hot...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just bought an H60 and a 965. Installed onto a MA785-UD3H mobo which was running a 435 Rana @ 3.6 Ghz and a push/pull Hyper212+ before. I set the OC back to default not to mess with the new processor settings. Installed the H60 and the computer wouldn't post because of low speed DDR2 RAM. I took out the RAM and the pump started to make a loud annoying whirring/buzzing noise. Obviously pissed off, i booted into windows to find that my temps were around 40 idle. I thought that there wasn't enough contact so i messed around and rebooted to find temps at 60 C idle. I took the H60 off and threw on the stock cooler to find idle temps at 50 C. Took that off and put the Hyper212 back on for 46 C

This isn't right and it's pissing me off. I think the H60 might've scorched or messed up the CPU somehow. The bottom of the heatsink on the H60 looks like it was scorched or burned a little bit. I'm curious what the hell it did to the processor and whether or not i should return it to amazon for a new one.

The H60 has already been filed for an RMA. I'm not dealing with this crap.

Any ideas as to what happened or fixes?

The pump may have died meaning your CPU was getting almost no cooling. Talk to corsair when you deal with the RMA they should replace parts broken by their cooler.

Pump failure caused overheating and fried your CPU.

Just what i feared.

Bottom contacts definitely have black marks on the bottom of it. Will Corsair replace the fried/terribly working CPU?

As far as I know they replace any HW damaged by their pumps, make sure to contact them and get the ball rolling.

Hmmm..... Iv'e noticed this straight away when my pump died.... because the power connections wern't plugged in correctly, and the end result was, hissing noize coming from my CPU block and the pipes started to melt, then my computer hitted it's thermal shutdown point of 105C
